Leaf-footed Bug Explores Santa Hat
It takes awhile to put away the holiday stuff, but I generally get it done by the end of February. This Santa hat, however, escaped my attention and has wound up sitting on a picnic table in the backyard until "someone" has a chance to put it away. I picked it up the other day for no apparent reason (definitely NOT planning to climb up in the attic with it) when this leaf-footed bug (Leptoglossus zonatus) made its appearance from within the deep red polyester cone of the hat.
